Bringing aquaculturists and the public together through the sci-café experience

2021 eeBLUE aquaculture literacy awardee - Brunswick, Maine

Canopy Farms L3C offsite link, and their partners at Maine Sea Grant’s Darling Marine Center offsite link, Hurricane Island Center for Science and Leadership offsite link, and Kaskolos Sea Vegetables offsite link teamed up to increase aquaculture literacy and seafood consumption by strengthening the reach of the Alternative Seafood Network offsite link in coastal Maine communities. Partners brought aquaculturists and the public together through cooking classes, K-12 virtual and in-person farm tours, and informal science café settings to teach about aquaculture’s role in Maine’s coastal economy.
